In the third of our Download Festival 2013 mini-podcasts, we talk to Kyle Shutt from The Sword, and the one and only Vinnie Paul from Hellyeah (and, of course, formerly of Pantera) about just what it is that makes their home state of Texas so great.
Hellyeah, stylized as HELLYEAH, is an American heavy metal supergroup, consisting of Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray, former Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell, bass player Kyle Sanders (who is the brother of Mastodon bassist and vocalist Troy Sanders), and guitarist Christian Brady. The idea to form a supergroup originated in 2000 on the Tattoo the Earth tour, although plans were constantly put on hold due to scheduling conflicts. The summer of 2006 allowed the band to take the project seriously and record its first album. Read more on Last.fm
Hellyeah on Thrash Hits
June 15th, 2012
Yep, it’s back – it’s time for episode 002 of the Thrash Hits podcast. We would’ve had it up yesterday, but iTunes was breaking our balls. This week Thrash Hits’ editors, Raziq Rauf and Hugh Platt, review the Download Festival 2012 line-up, discuss which bands fluffed it on the main stage, and sees Raz keep interrupting Hugh’s moaning with his bad James Hetfield impression.
We still want your feedback on this one, so please take a moment to send us your thoughts via email, by posting a comment down below, or by bellowing at us over Facebook or Twitter. And for Satan’s sake, go and subscribe to our podcast over on iTunes.

We can testify that ‘Alcohaulin’ Ass’ sounds as ridiculous today as it did in 2006. Keep it real, Vinnie!
